Lenco Tuntable built for 50 Hz. I need 60 Hz! Please?

My newly acquired turntable runs too FAST. I need to convert 120 VAC 60 Hz downward to 120 VAC 50 Hz. Any idea where I can buy a low power frequency converter cheaply? It only needs about 30 watts (est.) Thanks! Bob

Technic SL5200 turntable speed is to fast on 33/45


1. Some of these turntables were designed to work on multiple voltages. If yours has a voltage adjustment make sure it's set for 110 or 120 V (North American) or whatever your power line voltage is. 2. Does it have a variable speed control with markings around the platter that tell you when it's on speed? if so, make sure you're reading the right scale when you adjust speed. Some Technics turntables have scales for both 50 Hz and 60 Hz (North American) line frequency, with two rows of dots for each, and if you're looking at the wrong scale when you adjust the knobs you'll get the wrong speed. 3. If neither of these solves the problem, you'll have to take it in for service.

Need to transform 120v power to 240v


Bad news:

UK has 50 Hz electricity, and appliances are rated for local power..
Any appliance made for US market is rated 60 Hz.
50 Hz and 60 Hz electricity are different.

Look at label on your mixer, and then look at labels on local appliances. You will see 50 cycles or 60 cycles. Rarely appliances are labeled 50-60 cycles.
http://www.worldstandards.eu/electricity.htm#voltage
http://waterheatertimer.org/See-inside-main-breaker-box.html#Hz
http://waterheatertimer.org/What-is-3-phase-electric.html#120-240

Hz Hertz or cycles or frequency is number of rotations the electric generator turns per second.

Some appliances are rated 50-60 cycles and will work worldwide.
However most appliances are rated 50 or rated 60 but not both.
60 cycle motor will not perform as expected when connected to 50 cycles. And might overheat.
Generally, most motors can be converted to different voltages by taking motor to motor shop (if you can find one these day)
However electronic controls cannot be converted between 120V and 230V, nor will 50 Hz electronics work with 60 Hz power

Sorry Sue.
Buy another mixer.
Business will benefit from surge of consumer buying.

Will a UK SONY KDF - E50A12U LCD Projection TV work in the USA?


In the United States we have one flavor of electrical power. That is 117 VAC (Volts Alternating Current) at a (alternating) signal of 60 Hz.
Hz stands for a man named Hertz who discovered the phenomena of frequency in the 19th century. It was originally was called "cycles per second" but has been renamed long ago.

The UK uses 220 VAC at 50 Hz which is a different flavor of electricity.

Since Sony (as do most manufacturers) produce sets for the differences in regional use your set simply won't work in the U.S. There are transformers available to convert 220 VAC to 120 VAC (Your set draws 210 Watts when it's on and 17 W when it's off. That means you need a fairly heavy duty transformer to make the change. Unfortunately because your set was set up to work with 50 Hz (it is branded as a British production set)
I wouldn't risk operating it at 60Hz which is the type the U.S. uses. Besides that your tuner is designed to receive a different format video than the United States uses.

I'm going to Europe and wanted to know how to convert electricity so when I plug in my computer it won't fry the computer


This is a copy from the Radio Shack site. The quick answer is go to pretty much any electronic store or most travel stores and buy a Foreign Power Converter.

AC to AC Power Conversion (Foreign Voltage Converters) Purpose of Converter / Explanation of Operation AC-to-AC voltage converters, or travel converters, are designed to convert the voltage used in a foreign country to the voltage required for a particular AC device. These converters are either transformer-based or solid-state, and this affects what type of devices the converter can power. In addition to converting the power, you will often need to also use a plug adapter. Plug adapters are generally either built into the converter, or provided as separate parts. They are also sold separately, for use with multi-voltage devices that are designed to convert the power internally.
Selecting a Converter These are one of the more confusing of the power conversion devices. Because of the range of voltages, plug types and converter designs, many customers find that they need help determining exactly which converter they need. To aid in that process, we have put together a short worksheet to help you determine what type of converter is needed: We recommend that you print out thi sheet when taking a number of different devices to a different country.
First, you should determine the electrical requirements (voltage, frequency, and wattage) for the device(s) you will be taking with you. This information is generally on a label or embossed into the back or bottom of the device. Make a note of the voltage(s), frequency or frequencies, and the wattage indicated for each device.
  • The voltage may be given as either V, VAC or VDC. The standard voltage for US devices is 120 V. Devices that are designed to operate using different input voltages will be labeled, such as 110/120 V, or 120/240 V.
  • The frequency will be given in Hz. The standard frequency for US devices is 60 Hz. Devices that are designed to operate using different frequencies will be labeled, such as 50/60 Hz.
  • The wattage will be given in either watts (W) or volt-amps (VA). If the wattage is not listed on the device, you will need to contact the device's manufacturer for this information. If you have the maximum current consumption (in amps), you can calculate the wattage by multiplying the voltage (V) times the current consumption (A).
Next, you will need to know the electrical requirements for the country you are going to be visiting.
Next, you will need to compare your equipment requirements to the country's information to determine whether you need a Step-up or Step-down Voltage converter.
  • If your equipment accepts the voltage and frequency provided by the country you will be visiting, then only a Plug Adapter will be required.
  • If the voltage of the target country is higher than the voltage required by your device(s), you will need a Step-Up Voltage Converter.
  • If the voltage of the target country is lower than the voltage required by your device(s), you will need a Step-Down Voltage Converter.
Once you know what type of converter or adapter you need, consult our list of travel power conversion products to find one that meets your requirements.
Cautions
  • The AC outlet in many foreign bathrooms is for low-wattage devices only. To avoid damage to your converter and/or attached device, check with your host or hotel before powering a high-wattage device (such as a hair dryer) from this plug.
  • Do not use a voltage converter with electronic devices such as televisions, VCR's and computers unless the device indicates that it can handle both 50 Hz and 60 Hz.
  • Do not use heating appliances, such as hair dryers, irons and coffee-makers, on a transformer-based voltage converter.
  • Do not use non-heating electronic devices, such as calculators, electric razors and portable audio players, on solid-state voltage converter.
  • Do not use 110-120 VAC Surge protectors or Uninterruptible Power supplies on a 220-240 VAC system. Even with a step-down power converter, damage could occur as the two power systems are wired differently.

Lost the power plug what kind is it


1. You can buy a new power plug here.
2. You look at the power connector on your scanner and try to find a replacement with the following specifications:

Input voltage/frequency:
  • 100 Vac, 50/60 Hz (Japan)
  • 120 Vac, 60 Hz (North America)
  • 230 Vac, 50 Hz (Europe)
Output voltage/watt:
  • 12 V DC, 15 watt maximum
If you try to find an AC/DC converter yourself, make sure that the DC plug has the right +/- polarity and right size.

Different HZs problem (from 60Hz to 50Hz)


Hi,

Yes there are frequency converters available but most are relatively over rated (industrial) for your requirement such as MDS Power or VisiComm Industries. What you need is a Low Power Solid State Frequency Converters lower than a
Electrocon Frequency Converters. However, I expect this devices to be rather expensive.

A few other options you may want to consider:
1. Contact the store where you bought if from; swap with an International version (Model SL-1210 Mark II; same price as SL-1200 Mark II); dual voltage switchable on rear of unit: 120 volts/60 Hz (U.S.) or 220 volts/50 Hz (Europe). You hopefully just spend for the cost of shipping + a restocking fee;
2. Contact 3rd party Technics TT specialist like TopDJGear, Quality Electronics, Planet DJ or DJHardware
and inquire if they would supply you the part(s) that you need to convert the 1200 to a 1210; or
3. Offer a swap on eBay.

Hope this be of some idea/help. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
